NEW YORK | 148 W 48th St. | Pro

Rockefeller Group has assembled a site on the south side of 48th between 6th and 7th. All of the buildings are empty, but for one which houses a Dunkin Donuts and another which is a multistory parking garage. SL Green recently bought the corner property which Rockefeller did not control. It houses a Smilers Deli. I would not be surprised if SLG buys the whole site from RG. RG recently sold a development site that it assembled across the street on the north side of 48th. It includes the large building on 7th.

Surveyors were on site today, and I expect that this will be redeveloped very soon.

The white garage is on the far left of the photo, and Smilers is on the right.




This is an article about the site on the north side of 48th that RG sold:

Here's a photo I snapped today of the site RG just sold.

It depends. It could be 850.

It's a surprising remnant of old Times Sq.

I am ELATED to report that the disgusting Smiler's Deli on the corner has finally closed. I hope that SLG acquires the Rockefeller Group's huge assemblage and the one or two little walk ups that separate them.

It is not advisable to mess with SLG.

Oh wow! How did I miss this thread? I hope they snatch up those little walk ups standing in the way of this assemblage.

The sidewalk shed has been erected in connection with the demolition of this POS. It's a matter of time before SLG acquires Rockefeller Group's huge vacant assemblage.

If the acquisition goes through, how big will they be able to go here ?

It could be pretty tall unless they devote a lot. Of space. To retail.
